Hi I was looking for grants and scholarships and I came across this i am 5'11 and a senior. I don't know if there is TCI people in the Chicago area.

Victor N  on 10/6/2020 7:29:50 AM

Hi, My name is Victor and I am 16 year old. During quarantine a grew about 4 inches. I was 6'1 in shoes before Covid, and during the month of May i grew to 6'4 without shoes. I applied for the scholarship because somebody close to me applied for the scholarship and WON. I hope i can too.

Calvin B.  on 9/22/2020 10:44:43 PM

I'm not applying because I'm old, but my kid is tall so we found this site, and I'm commenting just to give encouragement to all the young people on here. Being tall can be uncomfortable when you're young, but embrace it, and have fun with it. When strangers ask "Do you play basketball?", you can respond with "Do you play miniature golf?". When strangers ask "How tall are you, anyway?", you should always make them think. For example, my response is "five foot seventeen". The look on their face cracks me up every time! Or give them your height in centimeters. Be proud, stand tall, and have fun.

Alexa R.  on 8/29/2020 8:21:34 AM

I have been the tallest in my class since I can remember, ready for this.

Jacob G.  on 8/18/2020 9:58:41 AM

Hi, my name is Jacob and I am currently attending my first year of college in Oshkosh, WI. I am 21 years old and 6'4 of Prussian descent. There is no Talls Club in my area. I hope there are other options as there are many in my state. Thanks for your consideration.

Joe C  on 8/7/2020 11:48:19 AM

Like Majority of the students in this chat, I am an extremely tall person. Standing at 6'6" I look over many of my friends and supperiors. It's nice being tall until you forget to duck your head through a door way and give yourself a self made Concussion. Like anything, there are pros and cons with being tall.

I am currently on track to be graduating in the fall and any help for my schooling would be splendid! Thank you

Anesa K  on 5/29/2020 12:19:33 AM

Being one of the tallest girls in a small town, and constantly put down for my 5'10" height. This scholarship can prove those people who always saw it as a negative trait wrong. Learning to love the height to this day, and with the help of this scholarship I can prove to myself that the height is nothing but blessing.

Kylee S  on 5/24/2020 9:14:19 PM

Hi, my name is Kylee and i think i would be wonderful for this scholarship. i was looking for scholarships for my height cause for me to my friends its pretty dramatic, being 6'2-3 female setting were only a few people(females) are over 5'6, although i'm a few hours away from my local club i think it would be great to not only be in an amazing environment for me. I think it would be an amazing addition to this club and program.

Jonathon M  on 5/22/2020 9:11:47 PM

Yes I applied for this scholarship because I feel like people don't really understand how much of a pain being tall really is. You never fit in cars and when you do fit in a car you're hitting your head on the roof of the car. being 6'4 kinda sucks because the world just isn't made for your height. CALIFORNIA WYA?

Test-Optional Colleges Pledge to Judge Applications Holistically

October 22, 2020

by Izzy Hall

In response to the coronavirus pandemic and the way it has made it harder than ever to take the SAT and ACT, many colleges and universities, from large state universities to small liberal arts colleges, have announced that their admissions for next year’s Class of 2025 will be test-optional. Test-optional admissions mean that schools won’t require a submission of a standardized test score as part of the admissions process. But how will admissions officials judge applicants without a score? Will a student who doesn’t submit a standardized test score be penalized in any way? And will a student who does submit a score be chosen over one who doesn’t? [...]
